Core Piece #1

The making of sculpture becomes a ritual when the sculptor becomes as one with it and the parts fall into its whole as if in a trance.

The residue returns to the earth, or on occasion reappears clothed in new identity. These core pieces were once core residue of The Inner Stone of Area 4.
